The 54 Album Release Party in Atlanta this Week! Mention Afro-punk, win free album!

The 54 had the best self made promo video for the 2010 Afro-punk festival, hands down. For that reason, and some others (like 1) their song, Dominate, let us know that we're just a mutha fucka, 2) they're all in the underground Atlanta scene, and 3) their guitarist, Walter, is really good), we are psyched about their first released album, Building a Giant Machine, which will be…

Sultry Saidah Talibah currently on tour with Johnny Reid

It took us a while to get her name just right, but that didn't stop us from totally digging Ms.
Saidah Baba Talibah when we first met her in Toronto for the Afro-punk 2009 U.S. tour. It was in Toronto where we saw Saidah dominate the stage with a string trio and… Continue

Jay Smooth Video on Midterm Elections- Stop Trying to Relate!

Just days before the 2010 midterm elections (Nov. 2 for those of you who maybe forgot), we see this hilarious video from Jay Smooth from our partners from Giant Magazine, on why you should never trust a politician who says they’re “just like you.” Don't forget to vote this Tuesday, but please be advised, as Jay Smooth says, be weary of the campaign ads of people trying too hard to relate, how about just handing over your paycheck. Thanks.…

PREVIEW: N*E*R*D Keeps It Funky After All With New Album "Nothing"

Watch this! N*E*R*D's album "Nothing" will be out next week (November 2nd). Although Pharrell Williams has been talking about a classic rock feel in recent interviews, most of the tracks we've been hearing so far are more of a funky blend of hip-hop/rock/pop (not that it's a bad thing, but we're just sayin'...). For the first time, the band enlisted outside producers such as French electro duo Daft Punk. Playful at times, the record also deals with more serious topics: the… Continue

ShingoSays: The CMJ Roundup: CMJ is no joke

I’m bleeding exhausted. Those of you who were in New York City this past weekend, there’s probably a 100% chance you were CMJing. I too willfully and eagerly ran my body into the ground during CMJ, the College Music Journal’s music marathon/festival/4 day shit-show of every band you’ve ever wanted to see, back to back, and in a row all over the city. To do CMJ efficiently it requires a detailed schedule, cooperation from your friends who don’t want to go to rock shows, and…

Shawn Brown Spills the Beans on Dag Nasty

To some, Shawn Brown is a legend of hardcore. A one-off. A voice who injected real anger and passion into a genre renowned for crybabies and tough-guy posers. As the original vocalist in Dag Nasty he helped Brian Baker exorcise his post-Minor Threat demons before getting unceremoniously booted out for his trouble. With Swiz, he wrote the book on how progressive hardcore could still retain its aggression and confidence while…
